Moreover, Smart is the sole 4G LTE provider in Capiz, Iloilo, Leyte and Negros Oriental in the Visayas, and Misamis Oriental and Zamboanga Del Sur in Mindanao.

Meanwhile, Globe Telecom is currently expanding its LTE network to cover more key cities in Metro Manila. At first, Globe has just focused on “large contiguous area” like Makati City. Recently, Globe said that the company has activated more LTE sites and now available also in Pasig City, Quezon City, Taguig, Manila, Muntinlupa, San Juan, and Las Pinas.
